In positive terms, Djurgården may be SHL’s premier opponent during the year. The Stockholm men have consistently shown that the class is there and park, despite the loss last, in the third place in the table.
The loss came against two-way Färjestad on the wilderness, which one had the chance to pass, and as they won the game beforehand. Over 60 minutes – fair but exciting, at least it became … 1-2 in the back. Adam Reideborn in the box showed the class again and his rescue percentage is impressive 93.9% over his nine appearances.
While harmony, despite the loss, prevails in Stockholm’s premier sports club, it is less peaceful in Gothenburg’s dito. Frölunda has been bothered hard to fix the stuff and found, for example, ten sticks below the evening’s opponent. One ninth place has been enough – and soon you have to get some wind in the sail …
Last week, exactly a week ago, FHC comes from a macabre failure when the CHL eight-final against Czech Liberec was vibrated. The 3-2 win over was in vain and the loss figures, after extension, were written 4-6 in Scandinavium.
CHL failure meant Frölunda’s third straight loss and in SHL four of the last five matches have also been lost, all in regular time. An equally astonishing and worrying facit.
Now, maybe the week’s break that Frölunda has received – Djurgården has ten days since the last game – done well, but we must take into account how it de facto looks and at the odds it is not very difficult to evaluate where the value is.
And, as you may have done, it’s the games for the Stockholmers favor.
Before the short 1-2 loss against Tabby and Formula Farjestad, Djurgården had won four straight in regular time and did not lose less than seven in the match. The team has found right in the defensive, which would otherwise be the intended Achilles heel, and with two goalkeepers who perform well you have won a lot.
